Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Five chapters tell the story of Chip the Pig's visit to Fitch the wolf's granny's house. The only glitch is that Chip wonders all the way there what they will eat for dinner and even jokes uneasily about whether Granny will like him baked or boiled? There are small references to "The Three Pigs," some funny comparisons as the naïve Chip notices all the cool things different from his house, like magazines in the bathroom and magnets on the refrigerator door, including one from Howlywood. When he spots Granny, her false teeth are giving her trouble and among Chip's nervous misunderstandings are a serving of "chunk of Chip pie." Just as he is about to bolt, Granny tucks her teeth in more tightly and says "Chocolate Chip Pie" and all ends well. The gentle humor and allusions reward older readers and the four to eight lines of text per page will not daunt them. Ansley's illustrations rely on black line and muted full color watercolor to bring the story details alive and young readers won't be disappointed in this third book in the "Fitch and Chip" series. 2004, Atheneum, Ages 6 to 8.
—Susan Hepler, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-An original story based on the fairy-tale characters of the wolf and the pig, paired off here as friends. The writing is engaging and humorous, with plenty of entertaining dialogue. The ink-and-watercolor cartoon art matches the story well and has enough detail to hold children's interest. The illustrations and text are balanced so that the latter will not be overwhelming to beginning readers. Wheeler does a good job of portraying classic enemies as friends, which allows them to transcend the barriers conventional society may have erected between them. The extensive dialogue and simple vocabulary make this book a good independent read. Youngsters who are developing confidence in their ability will appreciate the chapter-book format. The underlying connection to fairy tales will easily spark a sense of familiarity to which children will respond.-Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Fitch the wolf and Chip the pig return for a third easy-reader adventure together, this time with a humorous fractured fairy-tale twist. Hints of "The Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood" are cleverly inserted into the plot as Fitch takes Chip to his house to meet his grandmother. She happens to be having trouble with her false teeth (her "looong, white teeth") and she makes several remarks that lead Chip to believe that he's included in the dinner plans-as the featured dish. Ansley's ink-and-watercolor illustrations add to the humor, with a delightful Granny Wolf in nightcap and shawl. Wheeler divides the story into short chapters, with each chapter revealing more ways that the wolf household differs from Chip's house. Granny Wolf and Chip find their common ground by the concluding supper, which includes chocolate-chip pie (not "chunk of chip pie"). A humorous easy reader is always welcome, but this one also includes deliciously funny fairy-tale allusions as well as the theme of making friends with someone who is different and perhaps even downright scary. Though this makes a fine addition to a successful easy-reader series, it will also work well with fairy-tale studies in early elementary classrooms. (Easy reader. 6-8)
